Criminal Libel in Asia and International Legal Standards


Published April 11, 2006
Topics Robert Balin,


U.S. media lawyer Robert D. Balin discusses recent criminal libel cases in Asia and evolving international legal standards in libel defence.

Mr. Balin will discuss in particular Shin Corp v. Klangnarong, which was brought against a Thai activist who had criticized Thailand's Prime Minister and the telecommunications company owned by his family. In a decision that has been hailed as a victory for free expression, a Bangkok court recently dismissed criminal libel charges against the activist.

The decision recognized that the Thai public and press have a legitimate right to criticize political figures and public companies.

Mr. Balin led a team of international lawyers from three continents who assisted with the defense of the Thai libel suit. He writes and speaks frequently on international media legal issues.
